[TweakTown] Cooler Master TPC 812 Vapor Chamber CPU Cooler Review

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
TweakTown compared the new CM Vapor Chamber cooler against other high end Air Coolers including one water setup (Edge H20-320).
Stock and Overclocked i7-2600K

Cooler Master TPC 812 $69.95 MSRP
450

Quote:
In reality I am seeing pretty linear results to the voltage and clock increases in relation to the temperatures. I had hopes that a cooler like this could potentially be what we needed to crush the temperature issues I am reading about with Ivy Bridge CPUs and as the TPC 812 ships, I don't think it has it in it to be "that cooler".

Update


Xbit labs Review CM TPC 812 tested in Push-Pull configuration
http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/coolers/display/coolermaster-tpc-812_5.html#sect0

Sad that the Vapor Chamber Cooler from CM does so bad. But good that Thermalright value cooler does good.526

However, it is only at low speeds that we can see substantial benefits: 5°C at 800 and 1000 RPM, 4°C at 1200 RPM, and 3°C at 1400 RPM. There are no benefits at higher speeds. It’s easy to note that even with two fans the Cooler Master TPC 812 is inferior to the Thermalright TRUE Spirit, even though the gap is smaller than with one fan only. Alas, the vapor chamber technology doesn’t save the day for the new cooler.

Its good performance for just a single fan. Wish they would test with 2 fans or test each cooler with the exact same fan to give a more precise reading and comparison.

Newegg has Cooler Master TPC 812 in stock now for $69.99 (MSRP so not a hot deal).
In case somebody wants to be nice and try out a Push-Push setup.

It looks like this cooler performs at the level of the TR Venomous X and Prolimatech Megahalems. That is to say, about 3-5C worse than the best dual-tower coolers like the Silver Arrow and D14.

Not really impressive when you consider that the Venomous X is a bit smaller and was released 2 years ago...
